Garden Design Consultation
This is the starting point of any journey. Consultations are available for clients looking to start a complete landscape project or for clients looking for quick ideas and horticultural advice prior to a less complex garden renovation.
The first and most important step in the creative process. The onsite design consultation is a comprehensive, open format information gathering process that forms the basis for the design brief, and lays the foundations for a successful garden design.
Open communication is encouraged as ideas are exchanged. We explore wants and needs, discuss landscape design styles, products, budget and opportunities.
Design and site particulars are documented in the client brief document and utilized for later use in the concept design stage.
We also invite our clients to explore our visual library of landscape design based trade literature as well as examples of our past projects. These visual aids along with the client brief document are compiled in the project file for future referencing. This process allows for an individually tailored garden that meets the full requirements of the design brief.
Design consultations take between 60 and 90minutes. In the days following this meeting the client is sent a Fee Proposal that outlines the design brief, and the associated fee for developing a landscape concept plan.
